A few examples of the spectrum of the “movement” and reactions to it.
First, the Good:
Now, the Bad: the newest VDARE HBDer, the execrable fanboy Welton (emphasis added):
So, clearly, intelligence is the simplest explanation for most empirical evidence pf pathology.
Yes, and it is the simplest explanation for spelling errors as well.
Northeast Asians and Jews—even though they’re just as likely to be victims of racism…
Poor Asians and Jews tormented as they are by nasty racists in America. Innocent, pure as freshly laid snow, these high-IQ supermen can save themselves from exposure to knuckle-dragging Euro-brutes by going back to Asia and Israel (in Asia as well, by the way), respectively.
…—do not display the same behavior patterns because they have high intelligence, meaning they do quite the opposite of what races with low intelligence do.
Never, never forget the fundamental basis of HBD: Jews and Asians have a high, high-IQ, and are your natural masters and betters. All kneel before the Altar of Asia, and prostrate yourself before the Holy Yarmulke.
This model explains all the evidence.
All, all, all! And if, you know, reality contradicts HBD, we’ll just wave our hands around and try to explain away reality.
So it is amazing—considering that three of Benner’s five co-authors are Northeast Asians: Yishan Chen, Yijie Wang and Yen-Pi Cheng—that nobody thought of it.
Not so “amazing” when you consider that your Holy Orientals HATE White people, and will eagerly grasp on to, and promote, any theory that blames Whitey for Black and Hispanic deficiencies. The Rising Tide of Color needs “high-IQ” leadership, and Jews and Asians are always ready and willing to oblige!
The issue of “depression” can be explained by the way that low IQ indirectly predicts depression, due to the fact that low IQ leads you into poverty, unemployment, relationship and friendship breakdown, drug abuse, alcoholism, poor health and thus general misery.
Sure! Of course, HBD also tells us that Negroes have higher self-esteem, and lower suicide rates, than do Whites. Don’t expect any consistency from HBDers – it’s a religious faith, a political movement, all dedicated to enslaving Whites to Jews and Asians.
By contrast, Northeast Asians are prone to depression for mainly genetic reasons and in spite of their tendency, in Western countries, to achieve high socioeconomic status. Evolved to extremely harsh yet predictable ecologies, their ancestors could only survive in tightly bonded groups. This meant that you had to be able to get on with everybody, or you’d be cast out into the cold to die. This selected in favor of strong social anxiety, which is adaptive because it means that you are concerned about the future. However, this can become overwhelming, leading to depression and suicide.
Can we ever imagine a more perfect example of a “just so” story? Paging Rudyard Kipling!
Finally, the Ugly.
Look how communists and anarchists have degraded the beautiful Mota-Marin memorial, and consider modern official Spanish attitudes toward it. How about moving it to Romania? You know, to all those deficient non-Westerners (according to the HBDers) dancing the hora (long may it turn)?
